The arrival of Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks on Sunday evoked the question of whether Jackson could envision working for such a hands-on owner who's unafraid to publicly critique his players and coaches. "I don't think I could work under those conditions. I just don't," Jackson said. Then turning to the assembled reporters, he added, "You guys are bad enough." Jackson said he imagines it's a tough transition for players as well. "I think it's something they have to definitely get used to," Jackson said. "He's going to be a rooter, a supporter and probably critique it too. It's very difficult for players to get used to, but once they're in the mix, I think they get thick skin and they're OK."

its very hard to work with someone like that. its like an annoying parent that tries to play coach at a basketball game.

^Yet at the same time, he's an owner who actually cares about his team winning. Many owners simply are looking to make a buck.

Phil Jackson's personality is the total opposite of Cuban's. Phil is cool, calm, and composed while Cuban is a well renown hot head. I'm not surprised about this at all.
